Don't they look yummy? I used a recipe I found here. Awesome. It's called the only chocolate cake recipe you'll ever need and it's so true. Ever since I found it, it's become my go-to chocolate cake recipe. It's super moist and super fluffy. It almost melts in your mouth.
I then used a recipe for chocolate icing I found here. It's called 1-minute chocolate frosting. It takes a bit more than a minute from start to finish to actually have usable icing, but it does cook in 1 minute. This, too, is super awesome. And, like the cake recipe, has become my go-to chocolate icing. It sort of turns out more like a donut icing than what most people think of as frosting. My boyfriend says it tastes like the icing that tasty-kake puts on their cakes. And ya know what, thinking back, it kinda does.
I chopped up some Rolo's and Reese's cups and threw a small handful into each cup after I poured the batter into the pan. It didn't turn out so well. This batter is sadly not sturdy enough for candy insertion :( All the candy kinda fell to the bottom and melted into a puddle of gooey goodness. It did taste really good tho, once you got the goo peeled off of the wrapper!
Then I topped each cake with a some of the peanut butter cups (for the ones with pb cups inside) and some caramel bits and chocolate chips (for the ones with rolo's inside). Yum-o.
Anyway...here are the recipes:
